Hand Drawn, Colorful, Abstract Map Prints

Are you looking for abstract wall art that also has personal meaning? That's exactly where I was at when I started this business. I remember looking for a colorful abstract map print of Somerville (a neighborhood in Boston where I used to live) but I didn't want it to be cutesy- no hearts or cartoon creatures. I just wanted a bold, colorful, vibrant piece of art that showed off my neighborhood. It didn't exist, so I made my own and Carland Cartography was born.

My background is in the visual arts. I have both a BFA and MFA and have a deep desire to create and work with my hands. I have always been interested in maps, and think they are a great way to visually represent stories. I started drawing maps of Boston neighborhoods in 2012 as a hobby while I was finishing a graduate certificate in Urban Planning. I didnt realize how important this would become in my life.

Since then, Carland Cartography has grown from a hobby to a business and in 2020 I am hoping to transition to full time artist. My work has grown with me as life has changed, but one thing remains true- I love drawing maps and want to be able to make something for my customers that makes them happy. I'm excited to make work that serves two purposes:
1. is a colorful bold piece of abstract artwork, and
2. is a way for people to show off their favorite city, neighborhood, or place on the globe.
